University Assessment Committee

The University Assessment Committee has overall responsibility for developing Butler's assessment plan and for ensuring that the plan results in improvements in the quality of the university's programs. The committee is divided into two subcommittees. The academic subcommittee comprises the Associate Deans from each college, the Associate Provost for Faculty Affairs, and the Associate Provost for Student Academic Affairs. The administrative subcommittee comprises selected directors from a cross-section of administrative divisions and a student representative. Both subcommittees promote campus-wide assessment activities and serve as a resource to departments and divisions.
